Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2010-06-23
Good modern & very 90’s styled hard rock with a HUGE guitar sound, a lotta bass & direct vocals. Takes in everything from Fugazi, Helmet, Laughin' Hyenas, Jawbox (who’s J. Robbins produced this) & recent Fucked Up. Really good bass sound & production overall. Guest spots by Peter Searcy (Squirrel Bait), Bonnie Prince Billy, Aljica Trout (Lost Sounds, River City Tanlines, et. al.).

(((1))) Sad violins, organ intro.
((((2)))) Big burst of heavy rawk! Jagged tempo with lots of nice changes & catchy vocals.
((((3)))) Reminiscent of recent Fucked Up, steady big ‘ol guitars and super-easy to follow.
((((((4)))))) Giant bass sound & loud drumming & simple but aggressive vocals. Gotta love them pick slides, too.
((((5)))) Laid back, bassy, not far from the old mid-late 80’s heavy rawk ‘ala Laughin’ Hyenas & early 90’s stuff like Chokebore.
((((6)))) Good effort albeit not always “on” but damn the playing on this is ace!
(((((7))))) Very loud & bombastic while still extremely catchy. Shouted vocals. Slightly weak chorus but again the playing is so strong it doesn’t detract. Sounds like this would be awesome live.
(((8))) Way too basic & pretty lazy with this 2-3 riff song.
((((9)))) Bright chords, weird structure but rather interesting as well. Very Fugazi-ish vocally then some good bursts of volume & distortion.
((((10)))) Loud strums and direct, very 90’s heavy rawk sound (LOTS of AmRep & Touch N’ Go bands they’re taking stuff from here). Chorus drags a little but yet again they play great.
((((11)))) Strummy mellow intro then big & warm chords with headnoddin’ bass.
((((12)))) Fast, stripped down & rockin’ with shouted but accessible vocals. “Get gone while you can!”
